Fruits Of The Loom: 15 Of The Coolest Crochet Pieces To Buy Now!

Trends can sometimes trigger two very opposite effects. Take for instance, the platform heel: If not designed or adorned properly, it can look, well, very Hollywood Boulevard à la Pretty Woman. Or, how about donning a hodgepodge of prints — you either earn a Man Repeller-style gold star, or look like you're channeling LMFAO on a bad day.
Well, Angelenos have been bearing another bipolar look of late: Summer crochets have been spotted everywhere from the shores of the Pacific to even more formal affairs like bridal showers. And while needlepoint can be super chic, it can also reek of granny-style moth balls. To save you from any doily-doppelgänger accusations, we've hunted down 15 gorgeous interlaced items that are perfectly youthful for a summer finale of any kind (Labor Day awaits!).
